Act of Valor on Blu-ray Combo & DVD June 5th


A Motion Picture Unlike Any Before Unfolds
On Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD June 5

The only easy day was yesterday.  In the Bandito Brothers’ ACT OF VALOR, an elite military force, portrayed by active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, carries out an impossible mission with insane courage and incredible teamwork in one of the most gripping and emotionally charged movies of the year.  Landing June 5th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the ACT OF VALOR  Blu-ray and DVD is loaded with extras including several deleted scenes, interviews with Navy SEALs, director’s commentary, exclusive featurettes, including a look at the real bullets and tactics used during filming, and much more! ACT OF VALOR was theatrically released by Relativity Media on February 24th and became the No. 1 movie in America in its debut.
An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, ACT OF VALOR stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside actors Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nester Serrano, in a film like no other in Hollywood’s history.  A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operation, ACT OF VALOR features a riveting story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.

When a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA operative unexpectedly results in the discovery of an imminent, terrifying global threat, an elite team of highly trained Navy SEALs must immediately embark on a heart-stopping secret operation, the outcome of which will determine the fate of us all.
ACT OF VALOR combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the-minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure film–showcasing the skills, training and tenacity of the greatest action heroes of them all: real Navy SEALs.

Produced and directed by former Baja 1000 champion Mike “Mouse” McCoy and former stuntman Scott Waugh, and written by Kurt Johnstad (300),  the ACT OF VALOR Blu-ray and DVD arrives June 5th just in time for Father’s Day.

The 411 by Maria:

Well, let's just jump right in with we love movies about the military and we love action so we had very high hopes for Acts of Valor. 

We loved the action. We loved the concept and knowing this was "real" we loved that too.  When there was action, we were on the edge of our seats. However, when there was no action, it was very slow. The dialogue was slow, the acting was slow. Yes, these are real Navy Seals and not actors but honestly, I felt like it was a propaganda movie.  It seemed a little empty and unfulfilling to me which had me thinking maybe it was a "guy" movie but there were a few times Teach wanted to give up on it. We hung in but he did leave the room a few times and if something is really good he asks me to pause it. When I asked if he wanted it paused he said no. This sealed it for me. 

Good movie if you can sit and remind yourself that these are not actors. Not a single big drawing name among them but if you want to see something "real" made into a high budget film. This is it.
